Mystery Detective is a mystery solving party game that you can start playing almost as soon as you open the box.

One player, the Chief, takes one of the 100 illustrated cards and reads it to himself. The front of the card has the mystery, the back the solution. Then he reads the front of the card to the players and shows them the illustration. The other players are the detectives. Singly and together, they try to solve the mystery by asking the Chief questions. But he can only answer Yes, No, Close, or Not Relevant.

Here is a mystery:
Title: Nasty Finish
Excessive hurry led a man to a stinky situation.
The picture on the card shows a man about to step into it.

What’s going on?

The detectives discuss and try to form theories that can be proved or disproved by their questions:
Is the man afraid? - no
Did the man die? - yes
Was he murdered?- no

So it must have been an accident…

Now we're getting somewhere…

Bit by bit the detectives try to piece together the mystery. Often a question from one detective will give another an idea for a whole new line of questioning. There is no winner or loser but when you finally solve the mystery, you feel brilliant!

The mysteries, while not all crimes, are morbid and twisted and often very funny. You need to discuss, question and think outside of the box in order to solve them. Great fun, you can play almost anywhere, anytime. In the car, at the dinner table or at a gathering, all are perfect for this co-cop mystery solving game.

This volume contains 100 cases.
For Black Stories fans, this second volume includes never before published in English, translations of Black Stories Funny Death and Black Stories Shit Happens.
